Star Alliance opens new lounge at Rome Airport

Star Alliance customers travelling from Rome can look forward to a new premium lounge experience at Fiumicino Airport.

The new Star Alliance Lounge will welcome eligible First and Business Class passengers and Star Alliance Gold Card holders as of June 29th onwards. Located on the upper level of Boarding Zone D in Terminal 3, the lounge provides easy access to the departure gates for Alliance member carrier flights to European destinations in the Schengen Zone*.

The lounge can accommodate around 130 guests and will open daily from 05:15 to 21:15.

“Star Alliance has set itself the overall goal of improving the customer’s travel experience. Offering a premium lounge product is an integral part of this strategy.

Our new Rome Lounge expands the network of Star Alliance branded lounges to seven and offers our customers flying from the ‘Eternal City’ a state of the art lounge experience”, said Christian Draeger, Vice President Customer Experience, Star Alliance.

At Fiumicino, Star Alliance has cooperated with Aviapartner and Aeroporti di Roma to refurbish an existing lounge space, creating the first dedicated alliance lounge at the airport.

“We are very pleased to begin this partnership with Star Alliance as their product and vision perfectly matches the service and quality philosophy of Aviapartner Group” explains the General Manager of Aviapartner Group Lounges and Premium Guest Services, Mr. Italo Russo Silva .

“We are convinced that this partnership will be the beginning of future agreements “.

“Improving the quality of the services we offer is our primary commitment,” stated Ivan Bassato, Director of Airport Management for Aeroporti di Roma.

“We have worked alongside Aviapartner and Star Alliance to create an innovative and functional space that speaks for the high standards of quality achieved by Fiumicino.

Only a few days ago, the Airports Council International presented our airport with the Best Airport Award 2018, the most important award in our industry.

Results of this calibre are only achieved by working with constant commitment and the essential contribution of the main partners that operate daily at the airport, including Star Alliance and Aviapartner.
